RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
While Sister Superior is very close to Castleton, the views from Sister Superior offer much less evidence of man's footprint in the area. The hike is a little longer, and as a result these towers feel a little more wild than one would expect given the location.
Take this as far as you can up the wash. There are just a couple stopper points, otherwise the driving is pretty casual. Most people seem to stop at one point where a couple large rocks block the way, but more skilled drivers and/or specialized vehicles will be able to squeeze past this point.
Wherever you stop, the trail to the towers leaves the wash at a few obvious cairns. It heads up to an obvious low saddle, then along another relatively level section before heading steeply uphill. If you think the hike to Castleton is difficult, stay away from Sister Superior. The trail will deposit you below the start of the route Jah Man.
